6:27 am
anywhere. which is interesting. >> i see, because he has no past, right? >> the supreme court -- >> he left them in kenya, probably, right? >> i have no idea -- >> i'm just saying probably right? >> out of the country in hawaii somewhere. >> as far as the supreme court, he said the supreme court should not overturn the mandate by congress. and it's just like -- >> that would be judicial overreach, judicial activism -- >> what appellate court did you argue in front of? >> illinois appellate court. >> okay. where did you go to school? >> john marshall law school, because i was working as a cpa and i went to law school. >> okay. so you have a better understanding of constitutional law than the president?

6:34 am
cat right now. i can't believe you do physics jokes on the air? >> yes, we are the only place. >> so current told you that those jokes are okay, then? >> i don't think they are aware of what they have done yet. >> it has got to have some consequences, right? you are not still doing all of that explicit sex on the air? >> not quite as much frontal nudie. >> it is still basic cable. >> speaking of which, i saw the picture of you with stephanie. >> i sent that picture to sean hannity. it was between me and my smoking-hot girlfriend and i said this could be you in the middle. i said all of my favorites have
6:35 am
done it, alan grayson. the president let's get your reaction to this. the president yesterday on the supreme court. >> ultimately i'm confident that the supreme court will not take what would be an unprecedented extrordanaire step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected congress. >> i was somewhat surprised, but he went on to say that many conservative legal scholars that he knows that are not fans of the law agree with him. >> what did you expect him to say that there are five right-wing clowns on the court right now -- [ laughter ] >> he wanted to. >> yeah. >> what else could he possibly say? i think actually to some extent the white house has constrained
6:36 am
the legal arguments here and that could have an effect on the outcome. i have no problem in defending the emergency room fee. that's what i call it. you have to pay for the fact that some day you are hit by a truck and you could end up in the emergency room and therefore, you have to pay for it. i have no problem with that. it's a tax. the white house went way out of its way to prevent the lawyers or anybody else associated with the administration to calling it a tax. taxing is something the government can do and therefore, they had to dance around it in court and talk about broccoli instead. >> you drove the right wing insane, because, a that's what you do, and b, you said hurry up and die. if you strike down the mandate, there you go, right? >> yeah, the interesting thing
6:37 am
is we have had close to a dozen different serious republican candidates almost all of whom lead the polls in iowa at one time or another. and not one of whomever proposed anything that actually would allow six people in this country to see a doctor with 50 million people who have no coverage except for the 2006 version of mitt romney no longer exists apparently. no other major republican figure of any kind has explained how we can deal with this problem. they seem to be living in invisible hand fantasy land where all of the problems are solved by the so-called free market, including this one. >> a lot of people alan have made the argument that of course we had to go with the mandate. obviously what you and i and most people would like is medicare for all. either single payer or at least a public option. the fact is the mandate is what we had to settle for, right?
6:38 am
>> no, i don't think those two things are exclusive. i introduced the fourth-page bill that would allow anybody to buy in to medicare costs. and i don't think they have to do with the same thing. and i think that the bill has incredible value, whether or not the individual mandate is sound constitutional. i said i would vote for any bill that could save lyes and money. this bill does both. if you look at the harvard study -- i talked about this on the show before -- take two identical people, same gender race, one of whom has health coverage and the other does not. the one without health coverage is 40% more likely to die every year. the bill substantially reduces the number of americans -- down to close to nothing who have no health coverage.
6:39 am
it will save 40,000 lives a year. in addition, it saves $100 billion over time. in fact if you look at the ten-year span of the bill it's much more than that. it's close to a trillion. this bill saves lives and money with or without the individual mandate. >> what is your take on what is going to happen in the supreme court? >> the funny thing is actually i worked with two of them before they were justices when they were just mere judges. and notwithstanding that, the answer is i don't know. >> yeah. >> there's a four-judge block on one side of the court. there's a four-judge block on the other side of the court. and justice kennedy is often completely unreadable, and basically makes all of these decisions for the whole country. that's what he did in the citizen's united case. a decision that has devastated the political system.
6:40 am
>> yeah, and apparently frank luntz is writing these days. it's amazing how politicized these right-wing judges have become. >> i think it has always been that way. i think in general the legal system tries to make it seem like a wizard of oz when really it is a small-gray-haired man behind the curtain. and the fact that you are on tv now, that eliminates the fact that you are a small gray-haired man. [ laughter ] >> i always heard a hyper hyper7-year-old girl. >> that's close to the truth.
6:41 am
how do the polls play out. because santorum is saying romney is the worst republican in the world, and also he would like to be vice president. >> clearly this movie needs a third act. we need somebody to jump in and say no they are no good. i'll be the republican nominee. >> right. >> that's what the republicans seem to want but nobody jumped in yet -- >> sarah palin, as soon as she is done with "the today show," she is ready to serve. >> pancakes in an ihop. >> yeah. >> it looks like it is going to be romney, and i'm not really happy about that. i think he is mostly harmless but he is a faker. the thing i keep thinking about is the hunter story? >> that he hunts small varmints? >> he said he was a life-long
6:42 am
hunter, and it turned out he had only hunted twice in his life. once in 1962 and the other time in 2007. he hunts at least once each century whether he needs to or not. >> just for food. >> he is a faker. he -- he is a faker. and it's unfortunate that we have to go through that. why can't they come up with anybody who is a decent human being to run for president on the other side of the aisle. >> well he clearly only hunted for food because of his hard scrabble upbringing. obviously you are in florida and the country as well as florida has been really consumed with the trayvon martin case. we were saying yesterday, boy, they don't even take a pause the gun lobby to take a second. what is your take on all of that? >> regarding the law, it has clearly done a lot of harm.
6:43 am
you are talking about what some people call the stand your ground law, which has always been called the shoot to kill laws. if you look at justified homicides, they are put in the category of justifiable homicides because the law applies to them. they were in the 30s each year up until 2005 when the law was passed. and then as soon as the law was passed they shot up above a hundred. so because of this shoot to kill law, we have seen a number of so-called justifiable homicides triple in florida and stay tripled year after year after year. that seems to me to be a pretty bad law. >> it's all the usual suspects. the koch brothers, and the alec group, and the nra, and it's state by state. and you would think there would
6:44 am
at least be a moment to pause and reflect on this. but this has really been the worst of the worst this whole trayvon martin coverage hasn't it? >> the police feel like they are boxed in. they should have arrested him. i'm -- i'm going to say right now that regardless of their interpretation of the law -- and i think the law does not apply to this situation, because it deals with people who are put into life-threatening situation, not people who chase you through the neighborhood and shoot you in the chest. >> right. >> but be that as it may, i talked to the police. i have been to a number of the public event, and the police' point of view is that the law specifically says if the law applies, then they can't arrest someone. and you also by the way, isn't even sue civilly so they can't even end up with an o.j.-type
6:45 am
situation. >> i thought i heard because of the neighborhood watch situation, that he was a neighborhood watch captain, that the community could actually be sued. >> that is true, but that doesn't necessarily put him in any sort of risk. it's just plainly obvious here what has to happen. he has to be arrested. from the evidence i have seen he'll be tried and convicted. if you are claiming that you acted solely out of fear but then just seconds before you shot the kid, you said f-ing coon, the jury is going to be able to sort that one out. >> so you think there will be an arrest, i think that's the best news i have heard. >> well, there ought to be. nobody can force law enforcement officials to do something like that. but as i said the law, i think pretty clearly does not apply. >> but isn't -- >> they brought in a new sheriff and prosecutors and maybe
6:46 am
they'll see the light of day. >> but as a lawyer it is too late in the sense that a lot of the most basic police work was not done. they didn't do any of the things they should have done at the crime scene -- >> well they tested trayvon's body for drugs. >> yeah. >> the basic elements of the story are well-known and recorded on the 911 call. there's no doubt about who shot whom here. it's not as if some magical person came down from a helicopter, took a shot at trayvon and then jumped back into the helicopter.% the only thing that seems to be any dispute is who zimmerman acted out of hatred or fear? and i think that's a very artificial distinction. if you see a 17-year-old boy in a neighborhood that is one quarter black, if you see a 17-year-old boy talking through your neighborhood, and you have
6:47 am
never seen him before and -- and for no reason other than the color of his skin you fear him enough to shoot him in the chest? that's not a good defense. >> yeah, you don't even have to have all of the fancy harvard degrees you have mr. grayson. [ laughter ] >> thanks so much for your time honey. talk to you soon. >> okay. thank you. >> he is cuddly too. >> what does the lovely and talented mrs. grayson think of this? >> she wasn't there. 48 minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show" >> announcer: join the party 1-800-steph-12. winner bill press joins current's morning news block. >>i know what i'm talking about and i love it and i try to bring that to the show.

but how much is important, because if mitt romney wins by a lot, it could seriously hobble santorum as he tries to make it to the pennsylvania primary. the second one is who votes? and that is important because if mitt romney takes the suburbs, it then means that maybe conservatives are finally coming around to him. and the third is turnout, and that is an indicator of how much enthusiasm that might be for the general election and the recall vote for scott walker. it is not a winner take all state, there are 37 delegates up for grabs, but mitt romney is probably going to win it and take most if not all of those delegates. and romney is also preparing to get a serious influx of cash. he is going to start fund-raising with the rnc. an individual can give $75,000
